Lemon Herb Roasted Chicken Breasts

Fried chicken fillets and vegetables on wooden background

Serves 4

  • 2 lemons, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon thyme
  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 4 chicken breasts (boneless, skinless)
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

Method 

  1. Preheat oven to 180C.  Layer ½ of the lemon slices on the bottom of a baking dish. Sprinkle with ½ of the herbs and ½ of the sliced garlic. 
  2. Place the chicken breasts on top and sprinkle salt & pepper.  Place remaining lemon, herbs and garlic on top of the chicken.  Drizzle with olive oil.  Cover with a lid or foil.
  3. Bake for 45 minutes until chicken is cooked through. If you want the chicken to be a bit more ‘roasty’, remove the lid/foil and broil for another few minutes (watching carefully not to burn it). 
  4. Serve with a salad or veggies.  Enjoy!

Tip: You can add a leftover sliced chicken breast to your salad for lunch the next day!
